Fashion Doppelgänger: Nine West vs. Forever 21

We have seen them on Childhood Flames, Fashion Toast, The Sartorialist and they’re even sitting in my closet – the black “heech” gladiators from Nine West. If you haven’t seen them or don’t already own them, I suggest these shoes if you are looking for a gladiator with some height. Even better is that they are on sale ($69.99) on their site.

Or should you opt for their fashion doppelgänger? I was perusing the Forever 21 shoe page, and came across the Blanea Wedge. Tres intéressant, non? At $24.80 and almost an identical, they could be the cure for your gladiator blues. The catch is they only come in brown.

SO, now it is up to you – another in brown, one of each, or none at all because you only think gladiators are a trend. If you ask me, you can never have too many gladiators; I’ve been collecting since 2002.

    Dear Milly,

    The Nine West are a pretty comfortable gladiator wedge. If you’ve worn platforms or wedges before, then I’d say they are a good fit. If you haven’t, then they might take a little practice.
